The first meeutup in January was a big hit, and this session should provide for more good cheer and stimulating conversation.

    Okay, I read the link about the – let’s call it the “Score” voting method. I’m willing to agree this is non-inferior to the IRV voting method, and I’m willing to go along with it, if the option becomes available.

    (Though 0 through 5 scoring is wrong. You really want an odd number of ranks, and using five ranks generates the most reproducible results, so the scores should run from 0 to 4, or else from 1 to 5.)

    I didn’t like the linked page’s overselling of IRV weaknesses, and I don’t think it was accurate. The results of IRV elections have so far been representative in Minnesota, and have vastly improved the range of candidates and options available to the electorate. No wonder the usual suspects want to kill it. Single-choice voting is so horrible that I strongly oppose anyone’s attempt to repeal IRV at this time, even if they think they’re pursuing a better method.

    Scoring candidates would be fine. Just not if it throws us back to single-choice voting. I guess I’m voting strategically on this one.
